Nelson Dellis Wins the USA Memory Championship, 2011

Congratulations to Nelson Dellis — the new USA Memory Champion!

I saw the news on Twitter and Facebook. I’m hoping that full details will be published soon.

UPDATE:In addition to winning the title, Nelson also set new US Records in Speed Numbers, 248 digits, and Speed Cards of 52 in 1:03.

UPDATE: Nelson posted a writeup of the competition in his blog.



  • Congratulations Nelson!
